Yep there are always big distraction stories. Casey Anthony, Royal Wedding, and stories like that which deserve little to no attention are covered extensively for weeks. The only reason I can think of why they would bombard us with so much of that is to distract us from something big that's occuring simultaneously.
I concur 100% they try to dumb you down like that casey anthony bs i feel sorry for the little girl but two years of continued coverage was a bit much. That was not the only murdered child in the us in my hometown a guy killed 9 people including a baby but we arent seeing his trial explain to me why.

Nah dude I'm not even going to give MSM a chance. Even if you watch their shows with full awareness that it's propaganda, it'll still get through to you. Don't even give them a chance to manipulate your mind.
have to disagree with your instructions to not watch mainstream media news, my friend. stay informed, stay alert, stay aware: know what 'they' are feeding the masses so that you may intelligently discuss the topics of the day with those you come in contact with. no, i'm not saying watch and believe, not at all. i'm saying people like you and i should know the BS that is being put out to people so that we may be able to present other viewpoints and alternative news that we find from other sources.
know what they are saying so others can know the truth.
You don't have to watch MSM to be aware, there are alternative news sites that provide the same information without the intention of brainwashing people into thinking a certain way.
Why would I keep watching it? To identify the bias and show it to others? There are already groups that do that, for example ourfoxed.org
So be it. Reminds me of someone else's post, about turning off all TV altogether. Pretending it doesn't exist doesn't make it go away. I understand some may prefer to hunt with an empty gun...to each, their own.
